Incredible story. Amazing that one person with so few means can practically bring the online world to it’s knees!
My favourite designer/blogger!
“Tina Roth Eisenberg is the creator of popular design blog ‘swissmiss’. Originally from Switzerland she studied design in Geneva and Munich, before moving to New York where she worked for several prominent design studios including Thinkmap, where she helped design the award-winning Visual Thesaurus. Her design studio, also called swissmiss, produced work for the Museum of Modern Art and the Food Network. Now, no longer taking on client work, she focuses on personal projects including running the swissmiss blog, organising the global monthly CreativeMornings breakfast lecture series, running an online temporary tattoo shop and being the brains behind a to-do app called TeuxDeux.”

I like this, short but informative. My 11 year old daughter had never heard of dial-up so that had to be explained…
The 18 minute “Connecting” documentary, created by Bassett & Partners for Windows Phone Design Studio, is an exploration of the future of Interaction Design and User Experience from some of the industry’s thought leaders.
As the role of software is catapulting forward, Interaction Design is seen to be not only increasing in importance dramatically, but also expected to play a leading role in shaping the coming “Internet of things.” Ultimately, when the digital and physical worlds become one, humans along with technology are potentially on the path to becoming a “super organism” capable of influencing and enabling a broad spectrum of new behaviors in the world.
Excellent idea, I have subscribed to the newsletter and am really looking forward to ‘The Road Ahead’!
